From the Archives, Volume I
A selection of prints from the New York Artists Equity Association’s archives

The ten prints in this collection are reproductions from Improvisations (1953), a journal of lithographs produced by Artists Equity in connection with its annual Masquerade Ball.  First conceived in 1950 from an idea by Julio de Diego, Improvisations was a novel fundraising program where advertisers who supported Artists Equity’s mission commissioned illustrations by member-artists.  Each page was designed by the artist directly on the litho plate. 

Improvisations was produced from 1950 through 1959, each in an original edition of 2000.  Proceeds from Masquerade Ball ticket sales, advertisers’ commissions and the sale of Improvisations were used to support Artists Equity’s exhibitions, lectures and forums.

This collection includes works by:
Harold Black
Julio de Diego
Adolf Dehn
Alex Dobkin
Fritz Eichenberg
Antonio Frasconi
Joseph Kaplan
Robert Sinnott
Harry Sternberg
Marcel Vertes

Reproduced in an edition of 1000.
Printed on Finch Opaque Cover with archival inks by Grey Printing, New York.
